Trade Network Founder Passes

The staff of Trade Network, based in Lansing (MI), suffered a great personal loss on January 24 with the unexpected death of founder and President Gary Kay, due to complications following an emergency surgery.
Since its founding in 1991, Gary has enjoyed the fellowship of the entrepreneurs and business owners that form the backbone of the trade exchange. He dedicated his efforts to serving its client base with a strong sense of integrity and honor. Although some things will change with Gary’s passing, the staff asserts that what will not change is their commitment to carrying on in his tradition. The business will stand as a legacy to his hard work and entrepreneurial achievements.
A large share of the responsibilities involved with office operations have been passed along to his son Bryan, in recent years. Gary's wife Nancy has been actively involved as the finance manager since the company's inception. The office will continue to move forward under their guidance, along with the assistance of the current staff and board of advisors.

The funeral service was held Tuesday, January 27, in Saginaw, Michigan. Gary was cherished as husband, father, brother-in-law and loyal friend, and will be dearly missed. He is survived by wife Nancy of 35 years, and his three sons Bryan, Evan and Brandon. He has been an inspiration to those he loved, encouraging them to reach high and follow their dreams. — World's Largest Depository Of Barter Information

Services Costs Keep Increasing … Another Reason For Using Trade

Many stories about deflationary prices have appeared in our nation's newspapers and TV outlets. All of which leads a person to believe that everything is dropping in price. Not so.
Although big-ticket manufactured items are dropping a bit, what's really more important for the entrepreneurial business owner is the cost of services used on a regular basis. As well, prices for them are not dropping — they are increasing.
Luckily, many of these services are available through your trade exchange; purchasing them on trade — at your barter cost — makes excellent sense in today's tight economy.
Bottom-line: Focus your barter purchases on the increasingly costly services to get the most "bang" for your trade dollar!

With The New Year Underway, Where's Your Company Headed?

This is a wonderful time of the year to look back and analyze what you did right … or what you missed out on. However, it's also energizing as well as necessary to look into the future.
If you believe that markets and margins will be the same in five years as they are now, you are likely placing your company in jeopardy. Because no business or industry can escape the rapid change we see all around us.
So take a moment and consider the following questions…

  • Which customers will you serve in the months and years ahead?
  • What channels will you use to reach those future customers?
  • Who will your competitors be in the months and years ahead?
  • What will be your future competitive advantage?
  • What skills or capabilities will make you unique in the future?
  • Where will your future margins come from?
  • What will the new trends be in the future?
